Clinical Trial Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness of posters in improving patient awareness and knowledge of the signs and symptoms of stroke. The control group study will be conducted in the first two weeks. Subsequently, the intervention arm will occur in the subsequent two weeks.

Clinical Trial Description

Stroke is a major health problem and a known cause of death and disability worldwide. In Malaysia, stroke is known to be top five causes of death and top ten causes of hospitalization Malaysia. Ischemic stroke accounts for more than 95% of all stroke cases (1). A recent study done in Malaysia showed that only 26% of patients with stroke symptoms presented to the hospital within 3 hours. One of the reasons was patients did not perceive the symptoms of stroke as being that of a serious illness (2). One of the modalities to raise awareness of stroke is through an educational poster. Posters in the waiting room can increase awareness of health promotion issues (3). Therefore, by placing poster regarding sign and symptoms of stroke in the waiting room in a government clinic, can increase awareness of early presentation of stroke. ;
